How to Find the Cubed Root on an iPhone Calculator

By Matt McGew

The iPhone features a built in calculator application that allows you to perform basic scientific calculations. Using the calculator application's scientific mode you can calculate cubed roots. A cubed root is a number that when multiplied by itself three times yields a given number. For example, the cubed root of 8 is 2 since 2 x 2 x 2 = 8.

Step 1

Tap the "Calculator" application on your iPhone.

Step 2

Rotate your iPhone to the horizontal or landscape position to activate the scientific features of the Calculator application.

Step 3

Enter the number you want to find the cubed root of. For example, tap "8" to find the cubed root of 8.

Step 4

Press the root key. You will find the root key in the third row, the third icon from the left.

Step 5

Tap the "3" key to display the cubed root. Continuing the same example, the iPhone's Calculator application will display a "2."
